New States of Fragility report launched
The Igarapé Institute contributed to a new OECD report on States of Fragility. Co-founder and research director Robert Muggah contributed a section on fragile cities – with the report launched at a High Level Panel in New York in July. The report found that 80% of the poorest world population will live in fragile contexts before 2030. An op-ed on the subject was circulated in hundreds of outlets globally in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese.
Also in July, Igarapé Institute’s Robert Muggah was invited by the Brazilian Minister of Public Security Raul Jungmann to take part in a newly established Conselho Acadêmico de Segurança Pública. The council assembles Brazil’s leading academic, government and civil society representatives to discuss public policies, legislative reforms and other initiatives.
